The secret to making better monochrome photos:
Make your photos as black as possible (under-expose your photos to the maximum darkness, to the point where you can still see *something*).
Uncovering subtle details
Why shoot your photos as black as possible? To uncover subtle details you might have not been able to see normally.
Under-exposing and using flash
One of the main upsides of shooting with a flash is that it uncovers a new more mysterious world. Especially when shooting black and white with a flash… you get a double combo:
We don’t see the world in black and white, nor do we see the world with a flash.
